No.550 by Henryk Grudziński – One more idea to enjoy and analyze for our PG experts! (JV)

No.550.1 by Henryk Grudziński – Improvement to No.550 after a cook was found by Paul Răican. (JV)


Take & Make: Having captured, a unit must immediately, as part of its move, play a non-capturing move in imitation of the captured unit from the capture-square. If no such move is available, the capture is illegal. Promotion by capture occurs only when a pawn arrives on the promotion rank as the result of a take&make move. Checks are as in normal chess: after the notional capture of the checked K, the checking unit does not move away from the King’s square.

At first glance, the white Queen could have another path: d1-d3-b3-b7.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
